Nestling in the Shropshire countryside to the west of the city, Stokesay is not really a castle but a fortified manor house. It is, however, the most perfectly preserved example of its type. It dates back to the 13th Century and its Great Hall has remained unchanged since the lord of the manor feasted here several years ago.
